Renowned artist and New Orleans native Alan Flattman will serve as juror of the second annual Four Seasons of The Cedars Juried Art Show in September 2013. In a statement on Wednesday, Fondren Renaissance named the Pastel Society of America’s Hall of Fame Honoree as adjudicator.
Although accomplished in oil and watercolor, Flattmann has become best known for his work in pastel. In 1987 Watson Guptill published his book The Art of Pastel Painting. His work is also the subject of two additional books; Alan Flattmann’s French Quarter Impressions and The Poetic Realism of Alan Flattmann. A new book, An Artist’s Vision of New Orleans: The Paintings of Alan Flattmann, is due out next spring.
As well as receiving numerous awards and honors during the course of his career, Flattmann has been featured in numerous art books and magazines such as Plein Air, American Artist, The Pastel Journal, Pastel Artist International, Watercolor, Southwest Art and the French magazine Pratique des Arts. His work has also been shown in over 60 solo exhibitions and included in major group exhibitions in the USA, France, Spain, Columbia and Taiwan. In addition, his paintings can be found in the public collections of: The Butler Institute of American Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Oklahoma Art Center, Longview Museum of Art, Mississippi Museum of Art, Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, St. Tammany Parish Justice Center and Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation.
